In just a short period of time, Minnesota's Shana "Rock Solid" Olsen has made a name for herself in the female fight game. Olsen has had just four pro MMA bouts. But during those four fights, she's already knocked off fellow ranked Minnesota fighters Kaitlin Young and Mariah Johnson, not to mention her victory over nationally ranked Yoko Takahashi.
With only four fights under her belt, Olsen has earned a spot at No. 6 in the world at 145 pounds. She also has earned her big break. Olsen has signed on with Strikeforce, and she will fight newcomer Julia Budd on Friday night during Strikeforce Challengers 11, which will be broadcast live on Showtime. The event takes place at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif.
We tracked down Olsen before she jumped on a plane for California.
